Depends on your definition of 'flat' most roads are not flat for any distance, what you may think is flat when doing a nice long flat out effort is often downhill. Same goes for short distance what do you call a short distance? I can go faster over 100m than I can over 1km but I'd still class 1km as a short distance?
I can maintain 22mph and max out at 30mph for a short distance.
Interested to hear what everyone else can do so I can see howwell/badly I am doing at cycling compared to other cyclists?
88mph on the flat, then I disappear.

I am indeed new to the forum and to cycling and, in light of the varied and wide ranging responses, I shall now be much more careful in my wording in future posts
Not sure how I ever lived without Bikeradar forum. Certainly keeps me going throughout the working day reading everyones posts on various topics

Friend of mine told me that if you do 31mph on the flat with a carbon bike the frame cracks.
